  • It was a pleasure and an honour to be part of the 34th Girona Film Festival, this is the second time I attend and it is always a wonderful experience. The whole team, without exception, was always very attentive and close to all the filmmakers, making sure they felt welcome, I haven't seen that closeness at other festivals, at least not at that level, it's like being in a family. Also the atmosphere with my fellow filmmakers was always supportive and collaborative from the very first moment. Girona is moreover a very beautiful city with a lot of history that is well worth a visit.
